Samsung's first attempt at facial recognition was bad. Both Galaxy S8 and Note 8 were quickly beaten by photos and video. The company does not even allow the use of facial recognition technology in Samsung payments, which actually acknowledges that its face recognition technology has a security risk.
Although Samsung has publicized Galaxy S9 with more intelligent facial unlocking technology, the system is faster than the previous system, rather than safer.
According to CNET reports, Galaxy S9 seems to first try to use the 2D face recognition system which is not used in early equipment, if it fails to try iris scanning function, if iris scanning unlock is not successful, combine the two. The result of this is to improve the speed of unlocking, but it does not improve the security of the unlocking function.
A security researcher says Samsung's intelligent scanning technology is trying to catch up with FaceID in the speed of unlocking, rather than chasing the latter in security.
